Madden 22 is almost upon us. While the game is set to launch on August 22, EA Sports have been dropping the ratings of certain players through the course of this week.

Rated 99 overall in Madden 21, Patrick Mahomes is among the few players to have been a part of the ’99 Club’. And the rights to admission to this club are truly exclusive. 

As the name suggests, only players 99 on the game are part of this illustrious group of top NFL athletes. While Mahomes is a favorite to land himself a spot on the list again, he feels the makers of the game did a great disservice to a teammate of his by not rating him 99.
